In Pursuit of Perfection by Jacki Kelly 💕 Fun Facts, Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Contemporary Romance)



The next man in Macy Rollins’s life must be perfect. She’s had enough impostors and isn’t willing to settle for anything less. All she has to do is get through the company contract negotiation season and she will get that promotion she has been working so hard for. Avery Malveaux – one of Philadelphia’s most eligible bachelors – has been hired to work with her as legal counsel for the company. From the moment they are forced to work together tensions are high and expectations are low. He questions her ability, she questions his intentions. After Macy is suspected in an accounting shortage, she accuses Avery of betraying her confidence. Has she once again been deceived by a man she thought she could trust? Can she clear her name and win her job back? And can there be any hope for Macy’s pursuit of perfection.


Fun fact about In Pursuit of Perfection.

This story came to me almost complete. It was as if Macy Rollins tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to tell her story. She wanted everyone to know about her simple life. She told me she was an average woman, who just wanted to help her family. And just like when the rest of us who decide to do something, it seems as if the universe steps in and places obstacles in our path. Well, Macy was no different. And just like the rest of us, Macy didn’t give up.

Fun Fact - To finish this story, I had to go to the library to complete the writing. Even though I have an office in my home, it seemed as if every family obstacle that came up needed my attention. Instead of letting this get me down, I decided to flee. In the library, there’s no talking, no internet connection and no interruptions. If I hadn’t chosen the library to write, I probably would have gone to a Starbucks or a sandwich shop, because writing at home wasn’t working.

Fun Fact – I submitted this story to a contest once and the judge told me she didn’t like Avery’s last name – Malveaux. I chose this name because it was strong and courageous. I guess it’s one of those names either you like or you don’t.

Fun Fact – this story has had more than one title. Some of the earlier ones, I can’t even recall.



From the moment Macy agreed to go out with Avery, she couldn’t focus on any of the important things. Instead of pursuing Michelle, she thought about what to wear. Instead of rechecking the few audit documents she had, she was wondering what she and Avery would talk about. This was a real date. Everything up to now was only practice. Dating Avery was playing with an open flame.


She closed her eyes and drew in a deep breath. All her thoughts whirled around the hurt little girl her father left standing in the doorway. That was the 202 area code number that kept showing up on her phone. She sighed.
Brian had been too young to understand the destruction their father had caused. But she couldn’t forget, and she couldn’t forgive.


The intoxicating expression on his face made her heart thump harder. There were good reasons to pull away from him. But she couldn’t. As risky as being with Avery was, she couldn’t walk away. She needed to forget about the past, to stop glancing backward and focus on the offerings of the future. Maybe now was the perfect time to open the lock on her heart.


The HR Director shook his head. “That’s not a possibility.”

For a moment the room was quiet. There had to be something she could say to make this right. “How soon—”

“Immediately. We’d like you to gather anything personal from your office that you’d like to take home with you and exit the building.”

She sat up straighter in the chair. “It sounds like you’re firing me.”
“Until we have finished our investigation, please do not return to the building.” He stood. The meeting was over.
